“A greater focus on operational consistency is foundational to the success of our ‘Easy to Love’ strategy,” said Siddiqui in a statement. “Jourdan is a trusted partner who works closely with franchisees to not only grow the Popeyes family with high-performing operators, but also support strong execution of system-wide operations initiatives that will take our brand to the next level.”

Daleo joined Restaurant Brands International in 2016, holding senior roles in franchising, business development, field operations, analytics, and franchise performance across the portfolio of brands.

All were effectively immediately, the company said in a LinkedIn post.
